processing (threshing) grains
I am unsure if this is the right place but "geeky" the topic is for a bread baking forum.
Has anybody found a good way of threshing small amounts of grain? I have sucessfully grown, threshed, winnowed, milled and baked my own wheat but it sure a (massive amount of) labour of love kind of thing. I had 800g cleaned wheat so far and it took me hours.
I googled up and down and watched endless videos on youtube but I haven't found a good way yet. The most reasonable idea was using a grass trimmer in a bucket. It went ok, not great. Still a lot of manual breaking up the grain, fishing out little bits of trimmer string and cleaning grains.
Any ideas? Recommendations?
I do not plan on a ton of grains and mostly specialty grains that I can't buy whole or as flours. I am in the grain growing Prairies of Canada and still find it a total waste land of (interesting) grains for human consumption.
